I would think sad and mad because the Americans got nervous so they put the Japanese Americans in Concentration camps until the end of the war. their really isn't much information that I can find but I do know that the Japanese Americans were mad at the Japanese and the Americans. Japanese bombed the free world the Japanese Americans came to and the Japanese Americans were mad at theAmericans for locking them up in concentration caps till the end of the war don't get me wrong I can be wrong on a few facts go to a library and check out a book on this subject.
The Japanese people had to recover from defeat and rebuild their country, which they did.
